Gibson Family Health Care In The News

  • Amherstview woman recognized for excellent health care

    A hardworking Amherstview woman has won a workplace award for providing excellent health care to residents at a long-term care home.

    Kayla Irish smiles at the news she is the home’s Employee of the Month for January 2023.

    Speaking on behalf of the home, Assistant Director of Care Melissa Locke notes, “Kayla is a wonderful addition to the HHCC family. She is mindful of the residents and her co-workers and makes sure everyone is taken care of. Her efforts are appreciated by all.”

    “I’m really honoured,” Kayla says about the prestigious award. “I love it here and I love being a Personal Support Worker.”

    Kayla has worked at Helen Henderson Care Centre for more than one-year. Prior to arriving at the home, she worked for Extendicare for eight years.

    “I’m much happier here,” says the 34-year-old with a smile. “I have worked straight nights for the past 14 years which works out great because I have a two-year-old. Night shift is a bit slower pace and not as rushed. You get more time to talk with the residents. I love spending time with the residents and providing the best care that I can. To make a difference in someone’s life is really rewarding.”

    Kayla works the same shifts and schedule as her mother who has worked as a PSW at the home for the past 23 years.

  • PSW retires after 33 years

    Cathy Webster has seen a lot of changes in her 33-year career as a health-care provider.

    Since she started as a Personal Support Worker at Carveth Care Centre in March 1989, health care has evolved to be more personalized and individualized, supply chains are more strategic and agile, and the workforce is more diverse.

    Speaking from her house around the corner from the popular retirement lodge and long-term care home in Gananoque, the 64-year-old says with a smile over a cup of tea, “I had a good career at Carveth. I learned a lot and I’ll miss the staff and residents. One person I’ll miss the most is Jeanette who trained and mentored me when I started working at the home. I appreciated her help and we’ve become good friends. She’s helped me a lot through life.”

    Cathy ended her work at Carveth in December 2022. Her favourite part of the job was interacting with the residents.

    “It’s important to know them,” she says wisely.

    Although she likes working with the elderly, Cathy admits her work as a Personal Support Worker was both physically and emotionally demanding.

    “PSW is not an easy job,” she explains. “Thankfully, at Carveth, everyone tries to help each other and that’s the way it should be.”
